Quest for something better

I’ve grown to love minivans. There are at least three minivans I can think of, that I would drive even if I didn’t have to drive around a family full of hooligans. But there is one minivan that I’ve never liked, which is surprising because I think they make a great line of cars.

What Nissan has designed to represent their company in the minivan market has always been unattractive to me. Previous iterations of this minivan looked like some poorly designed space pod that didn’t understand what its purpose was. Nissan tried to make the minivan sexy, and while it is possible to make a minivan look kinda cool (see Toyota’s Sienna), sexy is not the end game when talking minivans.

But the Nissan Quest, in my opinion doesn’t look cool. To me it looks like a half-aborted bread box with wheels on it. And while the reviews seem to be mostly positive (despite the lack of cargo space, no flat folding seats, or the ability to seat 8), I still hate it’s existence even though I’ve never set foot in one. Maybe Nissan can throw me a loaner car for a few months to change my mind though.
